Court has nullified the election of Peter Ocen as Kole South Member of Parliament.

The High Court in Lira Friday declared the Kole South seat vacant on grounds that Ocen who contested on the independent ticket was elected amid election violence orchestrated by his campaign camp.

The nullification of Ocen’s election follows a petition filed by former Kole South Fred Ebil Ebil challenging the results of the February 18 parliamentary elections in grounds that they were not free and fair and that his supporters were intimidated by Ocen’s supporters.

Ebil contested on the Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) party ticket.
